Is anyone else having issues getting onto the Essential baby site? Even if I go though google, it directs me to the Fairfax Media site?

Obviously I can get onto Essential Kids though?

Same. Went away to do what I had to do, came back to do what I didn't have to do, and wondered how I was going to spend the afternoon.

Just whatever they have changed in the way/s we can get in here. Someone has either forgotten something or just plain screwed up.

Yep same here on my phone. I had to log in via essential kids. I really don’t care about a name change/merge that is 9 months away

It's still happening here (I've just logged onto EK because of the issues). I've also cleared my cache etc. A bit frustrating.

I can get in but I click on a topic or try and post and sends me back to Fairfax. So back on essential kids for now

Finally got in. Went in through a link in Facebook. Can access the forum using http://www.essentialbaby.com.au/forums without the additional index stuff I used to use.
